Shiitake Varieties

If you wish to pay with cryptocurrency send me an email. I can take most crypto's, even the less well known.

I decided to start importing seeds that are considered rare in NZ. I have a horticultural and zoology background and thought seeds would go well along side my mushroom spawn. The seeds are the cheapest I can make them with most packets containing many seeds, I have already paid all MAF inspection fees, fumigation and GST so you have no hastles at the border and importantly the seed is actually in NZ and ready for delivery. Due to seed damage in the past I only use courier. Great for growing Christmas and birthday presents for friends and family with a unique twist.

If your looking for commercial quantities send me an email for a quote, because there is less time involved with bulk amounts I can make the prices much better for you. With bulk amounts time of deliveries can vary between 1-3 weeks depending on suppliers.

If you have ideas of what seed you would like to see in NZ send me an email and I will check to see if they can be imported, I would especially like to hear from the ethnic comunity.

 

If you have ever grown Shiitake in the past you will be amazed with the productivity of these new to NZ varieties. They will not only do well on traditional hardwood logs but also Straw, coffee grounds and sawdust/woodchip used in bag cultivation. They are all considered commercial varieties.

Wood Dowels are the easiest way to get started growing mushrooms. If you’re keen to test your local market by supplying local restaurants or cafes try the 10 log wood dowel kit. Check your local firewood sellers for logs if you don’t have access to hardwood logs. Most sell Gum which can be used to grow Shiitake quite successfully. You are looking for logs that were felled in the last few months and between 75 and 150mm in diameter.

Grain spawn in different sizes coming soon for people wanting to grow in substrate bags.

All prepared products leave my facility having been sterilised to 15 PSI for at least 1 full hour killing all pathogens, liquid or substrate. The only thing living in my cultures will be the mushroom mycelium.

You also need some kind of wax to paint over your inoculation points. You can use candle or bees wax, I sell Organic Soy Wax HERE.

If you wish to grow on Sawdust for either business or pleasure contact John at John Fairweather Specialty timber supplies.

I will be adding spawn later this month for people who feel confident growing on sawdust.

Please feel free to ask any questions. No question is too silly.
